This volume contains all of the extant letters written to each other by the renowned Joyce scholars, Hugh Kenner and Adaline Glasheen, between 1953 and 1984. In these frank letters, we are offered the opportunity to visit the creative process. The letters have been carefully annotated so that we can follow how their ideas are absorbed into their published writings. They do not hesitate to try out ideas on each another and they do not hesitate to express uncomfortable opinions. Their contributions to the common cause spark off each other. This book will be a compulsive read for Joyce scholars, for scholars of literary modernism, and for those interested in the history of literary criticism.
